The Youngstown Business and Professional Association is the recipient of a $500 check presented this week from First District Niagara County Legislator Clyde Burmaster. The funding from the county legislature assisted YBPA with the fourth annual Youngstown Arts and Music Festival, held Oct. 7 at Falkner Park.
"The success of these events adds to the quality of life of the entire county, attracts others from around the county, and brings needed revenues into local businesses," Burmaster said as he announced the county grant, which came from Seneca Niagara Casino funds.
"Again, we say thanks a million Clyde!" YBPA President Cheryl Irish Butera said. "The Youngstown Arts and Music Festival held on Oct. 7 was a huge success largely because of your support. It will certainly help defray the cost for the event tent. ...
"The Youngstown Business and Professional Association is, as always, a success because of your support through the Niagara County Legislature."
